It is with great sadness that I have to tell you about the sudden passing of a true legend of Irish golf, Christy O'Connor Jnr.

Christy was abroad in Tenerife and felt unwell with stomach pains and was was keen to get home this morning to Ireland. Unfortunately en route to the airport he suffered a cardiac arrest in the taxi and passed away shortly after.
